In The Line

In The Line

Taken at an alley at the city of Cowes at Phillip Island. The light that came from the top back make the model's face dark and soft when she faced away from the light. The photo had been converted to black and white in photoshop and curve adjustment had been done. The line design of the model's cloth seemed to radiate from her face, especially the lines on her arm.

A line can be described as an infinitely thin, infinitely long, perfectly straight curve (the term curve in mathematics includes "straight curves") containing an infinite number of points. In Euclidean geometry, exactly one line can be found that passes through any two points. The line provides the shortest connection between the points.

In two dimensions, two different lines can either be parallel, meaning they never meet, or may intersect at one and only one point. In three or more dimensions, lines may also be skew, meaning they don't meet, but also don't define a plane. Two distinct planes intersect in at most one line. Three or more points that lie on the same line are called collinear.
